Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Director: “Console Ports on PC Is Disrespectful”

At New York Comic Con, during the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided panel, Executive Game Director Jean-Francois Dugas shared some information regarding the PC version of the latest iteration of the Deus Ex franchise.

The PC version of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will get features that the consoles will not

Dugas states that “console ports on PC is disrespectful”  and adds that the PC should feature assets that the consoles do not, and it is “super important that the PC version is treated as such.” Given that most games get console port treatment, it's quite refreshing to hear that the team is giving the PC version of Mankind Divided the attention it deserves, and implementing assets that will improve upon its console counterparts. Mankind Divided will feature support for AMD's TressFX 3.0 as well as DirectX 12, which will enable the team to truly make the PC version of the game shine.

Outsidexbox released a new video for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, showcases some brand footage, detailing the new cover system, new energy system, Icarus Dash ability, remote hacking, charged weapons and weapon mods, among others.

In Deus Ex: Mankind Divided augmented humans are outcasts

The year is 2029, and mechanically augmented humans have now been deemed outcasts, living a life of complete and total segregation from the rest of society. Now an experienced covert-agent, Adam Jensen is forced to operate in a world that has grown to despise his kind. Armed with a new arsenal of state-of-the-art weapons and augmentations, he must choose the right approach, along with who to trust, in order to unravel a vast worldwide conspiracy.
